6 Alternate Reality TV Shows That You Must Watch

When you talk about alternate reality, you are in a way asking the question “what if?”, and through that you open the world of numerous possibilities – a world that’s anything but the present reality. So, when you do that, are you mesmerized by the results that you have imagined or are you scared to the bone? This is exactly the thing writers and directors want you to experience while you are watching a movie, TV show, or even reading a book based on an alternate reality. Notice how we refrained from using the word ‘sci-fi.’ Alternate reality is bigger than that. It deals with science or futuristic elements but it also makes you peep into history and see how things would have turned out if they wouldn’t have happened as expected. Something similar to the Schrödinger’s cat experiment but you get the answer to your “what if” question.

So, if you are into such stuff, you will love to watch these TV shows. These series are relatively new but look really promising.

Man in the High Castle
Ever thought how the world would be if the Allies had lost the World War 2 and Germany and Japan would have taken over America? You need to watch this show to find out!

Westworld
Based on Michael Crichton’s film, Westworld (released in 1973), this TV show shows how a well-planned, western-themed amusement park meets its fate, when its human-like robots go out of hand.

Addicted to gadgets and technology? Well, this show will change your mind. Through this anthology series, you can see how technology can manipulate human behavior.

Real Humans
What happens when humanoids, who are made to help you out with your chores develop free will and desire to fight for freedom from human ownership? This Swedish TV show will make you wonder if it makes sense for robots to demand to be like humans and experience things the way humans do.

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo
If you were missing some time travel or reincarnation action, this Korean fantasy series is for you. This TV show is based on the Chinese novel Bu Bu Jing Xin by Tong Hua and is the story of a 25-year-old, 21st century girl who drowns while saving a boy. While doing so, she somehow ends up in the mid-tenth century and is now a 16-year-old girl. This show has a good dose of romance, rivalry, politics, and action which will keep you engaged.

The Young Pope
This is an upcoming series in which Jude Law becomes the first American PopeLenny Belardo. And mind you, he is no ordinary Pope. He calls himself a contradiction, he doesn’t negotiate with anyone, and he intends to bring about a revolution – good or bad? Watch this show to find out.

So, which ones are you going to start watching now? If you have any more suggestions, don’t forget to tell us about them!

Web Series That You Need to Watch Now!

Indian television has become a melting pot of clichés. There are times when you will pause and wonder, what the hell has happened to the content on television. Most of the shows revolve around the same plot. But there are some, that try to play the “innovation card” by adding a little tadka of “modernism” and supernatural elements to the bland concoction of conservative values. Why?!

What If: Film Review – Answers that big question that you may have about life and love

When Harry (Billy Crystal) argued with Sally (Meg Ryan) how men and women could never be friends, it left us wondering if there was much truth in that. Perhaps, it called for speculation about each friend of yours that may or may not have been ‘worthy’ of sharing anything more than a platonic relationship. While some rubbished the idea, for some it brought immense hope. Hope often turns out to be light even in the darkest of times. On the same lines is Michael Dowse’s latest romantic-comedy, What If. Starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan in the lead roles, the film takes you on a journey that begins by chance for the two protagonists and ends on a note that’ll have the viewers wanting to fall in love over and over again. The film questions that very aspect of our lives. If you’re already in love, is it possible for you to fall in love again. What if something like that does happen? How do you handle the complications that a relationship that’s not so platonic brings with it? 

Daniel Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan along with the supporting star cast give a memorable performance in this film. It’s also a great beginning for movies of the genre that complement the feeling of love in the air. Blame the season for it. Perhaps some cynics may begrudge this, but this is the ugly truth, that often stares most lovelorn people right in the face. What’s very pleasing to the eyes is the way the story flows from beginning to end like a perfectly-conducted orchestra piece. The film has been adapted from T.J. Dawe’s play called Toothpaste and Cigars, and Elan Mastai marvels at it.
 
Spread over a period of a few months, Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe) ends up being the catalyst in Ben (Rafe Spall) and Chantry’s (Zoe Kazan) peaceful relationship. There’s a friendship, conversations, long walks, starry nights, bonfire and a lot more to set the perfect mood for romance. Besides, what’s better than to have a good friend of yours as a love interest? Like Harry said, “when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible”.
 
Why should you watch this film
Watch it for the perfectly simple story, the cinematography, the music and the feeling of love. It’s also a great change to see Daniel Radcliffe slowly moving away from all the fame he amassed while playing the boy-wizard, Harry Potter, into more serious, mature roles. If you’ve been a fan of the films penned by Nora Ephron, then consider this a tribute of sorts.

Two Night Stand: Film Review – It began with a one-night stand, and should’ve ended there

Picture this: it’s the Holidays, Christmas is ’round the corner, there’s snowfall, and everyone around you is falling in love. In reality, there’s no such thing happening. And when you watch a dry film such as Two Night Stand, your anti-faith in love crystallizes. The film, that promised greatness, is an assault to the senses of even a cynic, imagine its effect on a hopeless romantic. Pity. 

The film, starring Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton, is a rom-com meant for the Holiday season, but seems to have released a few months too soon. While films like No Strings Attached and Friends With Benefits had us rooting for the characters, this film may leave you with a rather insipid taste in your mouth. In its 86 minutes, there was nothing new that the film had to offer. The twenty-something couple meet over a dating site for a one-night stand, and get caught up in a circumstantial net. What follows is a story that has been narrated many times over. Only if it was as promising as its trailer. From the acting, to the chain of events, to the climax, there is nothing worth remembering in this film that releases this week. What it caters to, is the fact that it’s semi-watchable, but only on DVD, on one of those days when you have nothing else to do. That said, the other actors also have a very forgettable performance in the film. 

Yes, the film has its moments, but that’s it. They have all been sewed together like a patchwork quilt. What could’ve been a coming-of-age romantic film that is totally in tandem with the thought process of today’s youth, ends up being a confused affair. Sure, it makes an honest attempt at conveying a clear portrait of the modern-day hookup culture, and highlights the dishonesty of the profiles on the one too many online dating sites, the sentiments in the film still seem outdated. 

Why should you watch this film? 

Since the film came well in advance before the upcoming Holiday season, maybe you could go and watch it to try and get the effect around you. There isn’t any more reason why you should spend approx 90 minutes, that may otherwise seem unimportant, but suddenly seem spent aimlessly.

Finding Fanny: Film Review – A road trip to self-discovery

What do you get when you pit one eccentric person, against another? In most cases, you would probably be unsure of how to answer a random question such as this, however, the answer can be found in a 102 minutes of Finding Fanny. Take time out this weekend to watch 5 oddballs as they set out on their journey to find love and on the way, win some, lose some, and discover a lot. 

 
From the wit of Homi Adajania and Kersi Khambatta comes this feel-good story that shows Goa in its pristine best. It’s just wrong to compare an off-beat film such as this to a commercial one such as Cocktail (also directed by Homi Adajania). Yes, we had the pretty lady Deepika in the lead role in both films, but she was a wild child then, and is a subdued girl looking for love now. Then there’s Arjun Kapoor who makes an impact with his limited screen-time. Ranveer Singh, in his cameo would probably be a close second. The actor in his true element, doesn’t mouth dialogues, yet has enough energy to pep you up. The movie, however, belongs to the three veterans – Naseeruddin Shah, Pankaj Kapur and Dimple Kapadia. With seasoned actors such as them on screen, you would notice very little of every other element. The exception being Goa which serves as a scenic backdrop.
 
Here is a story which you may have possibly seen and heard before. But, Adajania is successful in giving the film his own quirky, magical touch thus recreating the effect that Being Cyrus and Cocktail had cumulatively left in our minds. The catchy tunes of ‘O Mahi Vey’ and ‘Ding Dong’ are sure to make it to your latest playlist. 
 
Why should you watch this film?
 
There is no reason why you shouldn’t. One can relate to the five oddballs as they set out on their journey in a dilapidated car in scenic Goa and nurse their shattered pride along the way. Finding Fanny forces you to slow down and enjoy the bumpy yet adventurous ride.

Mardaani: Film Review – Rani Mukerji delivers some mindblowing action. You wouldn’t want to miss it!

A film with a strong female protagonist is always great fun to watch. Some of these films possess the capability to transport you into the scene of all the real-action and makes you feel empowered and proud to be a woman. For the men, well, it’s the rise of a woman. The film tackles a serious issue of drugs and sex trafficking, and Pradeep Sarkar shows why he is the master of the game. He brings his signature style of filmmaking into Mardaani as well. At many levels, the film leaves you with a Laaga Chunari Mein Daag like taste in your mouth, but eventually, you know that it is Rani Mukerji’s film all the way. Having portrayed some wonderful female characters in the past, it is time that one bowed down to Her Highness as she regains her position as the Queen of B-Town. 

Mardaani is a film that doesn’t come with the tag of the mass entertainer that you can watch with friends and family and have a great time at the movies. It is a film that provokes you to put on your thinking cap and grimly accept the truth of the society that we live in. She leaves the screen with a message that will make you want to respect her character of Senior Inspector Shivani Shivaji Roy immensely. She teaches you to stand up and fight, not sit back, relax and watch the show as though it is your drawing room. She goes on to add that carrying a candle and joining a peace march does not solve the issue at hand. As the character of a strong police officer who stops at nothing to catch her criminal, she is sure to touch one too many hearts while inspiring all her viewers. 

The film comprises some fabulous work by debutant actor Tahir Bhasin. He may be too young to think as big as a kingpin, but post his masterfully performed role, the viewers shall stop attaching age to everything. Afterall, age is just a number. And Tahir Bhasin tells you why you should remember that, during the film and long after that. Bengali actor, Jisshu Sengupta had little to do, paired opposite Rani Mukerji, but he did justice to his role in every way possible. 

A word of caution, though. The film is bound to leave you with a heavy heart, it’s upto you to decide how you want to channelize the feeling. It may take some grit and determination for you to sit through this film, but you must watch it nonetheless. It’s enlightening, engaging and empowering. 

Why should you watch this film? 

Rani Mukerji… Rani Mukerji… Rani Mukerji. Once you’re done soaking in all the awesomeness that the seasoned actress brings in to her character of Shivani Shivaji Roy, you will notice everything else, from the ambience, the shots, the other actors. Having said that, it’s the taut story that engages you through the film’s complete runtime – the real heroine, the real star of the show. Kudos to the complete team!
